Let’s Have Some Coffee

We should definitely have some, yes?

Most definitely!

So, who’s up for a giveaway? I know y’all have to be. And, to be honest, I’m ready to give some! I shouldn’t be the only one getting a coffee fix this Fall!

So, how about some? Yeah?

Gift cards and/or coffee? I’ll give away two! Your choice.

The qualifier? Have you read Cracklin’ Rosie? Have you read Carnal Ecstasy? Both of these have coffee scenes…

If you answer yes, truthfully to either, then you can be entered…

Leave your name and email address so I may contact you and I’ll pick two winners on Friday afternoon around 5pm Eastern.

Now, how about an update?

I’m way behind on my writing. I hate being behind on my writing. I don’t know what’s going on with my motivation and my inspiration, but it’s lagging. Music, books, Tumblr, etc… None of it is working for me at the moment, but I’ll figure it out and get stuff moving forward. I have a few projects going but a deadline on at least two… Forever In Blue Jeans and Polar Shift.

I have finished edits on Arrested Holiday, which will be out in December from Loose Id. And edits will begin in a few weeks on Ink Spots with Ellora’s Cave.

There’s a lot going on so the writing does need to commence and very, very soon… Like right now.

So, if you want to win some coffee, or at least a Starbuck’s or Caribou Coffee gift card, comment with your answer of having read Cracklin’ Rosie or Carnal Ecstasy!

Being that it’s the holiday season, there will be other giveaways throughout the upcoming weeks as well…

(I am in love with this image and I have written a bit on a book that this imagine inspired titled Behind His Back. I can’t wait to have more time to work on it. Yum.)

The Readers Are On The Clock With The First Pick…

2010 nfl draft Pictures, Images and Photos I do not really watch NFL football, however I am a very big overall college football fan and I watch it religiously from the end of August through the beginning of February and the National Championship Game. It is because I watch these players for years that I watch and pay attention to the NFL draft and some very special players, I’ll follow their career through the pros.

Tonight, the draft moves into primetime for the first time. How fun! My son, husband, and myself will all be gathered around watching to see who takes whom and then we’ll discuss it being a good choice, bad choice, or who really cares choice. It’s fun and sports is about the only thing I have in common with my husband.

Some of the players I’ll be watching for:

Tony Pike out of Cincinnati.
Myron Rolle out of Florida State
C.J. Spiller out of Clemson
Sam Bradford out of Oklahoma
Brandon Spikes out of Florida
Tim Tebow out of Florida
Ndamukong Suh out of Nebraska
Blair White out of Michigan State
Maurkice Pouncey out of Florida State
Jimmy Clausen out of Notre Dame
Golden Tate out of Notre Dame
Mardy Gilyard out of Cincinnati

Of course, there are many others as well.

I was going to a giveaway and I still am. I was going to have my readers look up this list of players on Monday and tell me in what round they were drafted, but I’m sure most of you don’t care. So, I think I’ll just randomly pick 7 people out of those that follow my blog publicly for a prize of either a bag of coffee or $5 in ebook bucks from All Romance eBooks. You will have your choice.

This is my own draft. At random I am picking people!

And don’t forget, Sweet Caroline will be available on Tuesday, April 27th! I know I’m looking forward to it! Are you?!

Mocha Monday – New Contract Offers

It’s Monday and I could really use some coffee. In the last 9 days, I have had one cup of coffee. It’s time for a whole pot and then some. 
Last week was a really rough week. I had a very hard time mentally and emotionally, but I’m hoping this will be a better week. Let me say, if you or anyone you know suffers from depression in any form, please hug them, tell them you love them, let them know you’re there for them. It’s a hard thing to suffer with. In all ways.
Now for the good news, the happy news. My Ellora’s Cave editor sent me two contract offers last night. One for an Ellora’s Cave Quickie titled, The Swing and the second for an Ellora’s Cave Exotika titled, Carnal Ecstasy. 
The Swing has nothing to do with any other story, but if you read Simple Need, then you know at the beginning there is a bartender. Carnal Ecstasy is his story. Grins…
I am still waiting to hear from Samhain about my shifter book, Arctic Shift but as soon as I do, I will let all of you know! 
Have a great Monday!
